ECG demonstration to hit government
Some staff members of the Electricity Company of
Ghana (ECG) in the Central Region have called on
Ghanaians to mass up in a demonstration against
the intended concession of the company.

The staff members- calling themselves the
“Concerned Citizens and Central Regional Employees
of ECG” -intimated that they have the nation at
heart, hence the need to halt the intended deal by
the government.

In a press statement signed by the group’s
spokesperson, Mr. Seth Birikorang, and Secretary,
Mr. Emmanuel Quansah, and issued to Today in Cape
Coast in the Central Region on Tuesday, April 18,
2017, they warned that the concession, which will
last for 25 years, will definitely defeat the good
intention and purpose of government’s “one
district one factory” policy.

According to the statement, the concession will
not demonstrate any form of corporate social

“In consideration of article 7.1 of the compact,
MIDA will not submit to the laws of Ghana since
the compact overrides all laws of Ghana implying
that the PURC being a Ghanaian agency cannot
influence tariff determination,” it pointed out.

“Experts have predicted that the Ghanaian economy
will be worse off by implementing the concession
deal since a foreign entity policy will override
Ghanaian laws,” the statement added.

“This will make the ruling party unpopular and
risk becoming a one-term government,” the group

The group opined that the non-involvement of
labour, PUWU and national stakeholders constitute
a stab in the back of the country.

They therefore, called on government to urgently
expedite the proposed dialogue with key
stakeholders as promised by President Nana Addo
Dankwa Akufo-Addo to imbibe useful suggestions
that will be beneficial to the nation.

The statement further threatened to embark on
series of demonstrations across the country until
government cancels the deal.
